Oh goodie they're adding a Kirin! Love it! Why couldn't something like this been the 150 mount achieve? Would've matched the others better...

Considering we don't have any hoofed animals tameable, it's extremely unlikely we'll get a tameable one. Besides, hunters are spoiled enough in 5.1. 100+ new rares.

Oh yeah. I did! Either way, I'm still doubting. Goat is the one exception. We've been wanting other hoofies for awhile and haven't gotten a nibble.

Actually I don't care too much if they're tameable, I just want them to appear in the wild :) Same with Pandaren phoenixes.

yup and belf hawkstriders.....

But I would love to tame those Pandaren Phoenixes though, since unlike Kael'thas', they are not elemental. Heck, Pandaren Phoenixes can have a reincarnation as their exotic spell, but of course that spell would have 10 minute cd but shares 2 minute cd with heart of phoenix if they went ferocity!

I agree, definitely.

It looks all right. Not going to get my hopes up for it being in game just yet because having a model does not equal its going to be in game after all.

Usually means it'll get there eventually. See: Celestial Dragon minipet.
